Pietro Family Cellars
Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Inspired by Grandfather Pietro’s Old World Values... A wine with honest expression of the soil
Napa Valley 2016
The imprint of family values is found in today’s PIETRO FAMILY CELLARS wines – make an authentic fine wine that is an honest expression of the grape and the soil at a price that allows frequent enjoyment with family and friends.
81% Sauvignon Blanc 19% Sémillon
Harvested in mid-September 2016, the fruit was allowed to fully ripen to create our style of a Napa Valley interpretation of a Bordeaux style Sauvignon Blanc that is crisp yet full bodied with mouth coating deliciousness and made to age. Pure stainless steel fermentation of Sauvignon Blanc preserves clean, crisp finish notes enhanced by the lightly French oak barrel aged Sémillon to offer depth and body.
Luscious peach and pear notes blend with lemon peel aromatics.
The Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon grapes were grown in Pope Valley at an elevation 715 feet on the Whisky River Ranch using sustainable farming practices. Hot daytime temperatures ripen the fruit to perfection and cool 55 degree nights maintain beautiful acidity.
Sip as an aperitif. Pair with goat and sheep cheeses, shellfish, citrus based vinaigrettes and a decadent 50% milk chocolate treat.
Stainless steel fermented, sur lees for 24 months .
Drinkable now. Our Sauvignon Blanc with Sémillon ages well for 10+ years!
